O2 has launched its first Xda PDA device on a pay-as-you-go deal.
O2 said the new O2 Xda Zest will encourage first time PDA users to swap from conventional handsets to experience the benefits of using a fully featured PDA, without being tied into a minimum term.
The Xda Zest has been designed with a finger-friendly touch interface and a 2.8" TFT screen, making it easier to navigate.
The device has been designed by laptop manufacturer Asus. The Xda Zest comes with a free two week Co-pilot Sat Nav trial with full UK and Ireland GPS mapping.
Running on the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, users have access to e-mail using Mobile Outlook, as well having the capability to easily view and edit Microsoft Office documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats.
The Xda Zest has built-in Wi-Fi and HSDPA for fast connections to the web on the move. The handset also has a 3 megapixel camera, combined with an MP3 player and FM radio.
The device costs £249.99 on pay-as-you-go and is free on certain contract deals.
